We can raise the roof together!
Any and all support you can provide will help to preserve and protect our community’s historic theatre and keep a vibrant, economic engine in downtown Washington open.

Raise the Roof!

The Turnage Theatre roof structure must be replaced in 2019. A structural roof design report completed by Curtis McLawhorn Engineering has raised an alarm that the 1900s theatre roof structure is worsening rapidly and is in
imminent failure.

The Time is Now.

The roof structure and surface beyond a patch to the top surface and the insertion of an interior brace was not addressed in the restoration of the theatre in the mid-2000s. The roof structure (from the inside out,
trusses and all) must be completed over the next year to avoid failure in place.

Every Penny Counts.

AOP must raise between $450,000 – $500,000 which will require many supporters locally and across the nation.

Grants Kick Off Roof Campaign.

The Fox Theatre Institute has kicked off our Raise the Roof Campaign with a $50,000 grant. And the Eddie Smith Family Foundation has also donated $75,000 to support
this need. And pledged an additional $75,000 if we can raise $75,000 to match it between now and May 2019.
